Shrinking Citie

Sound extract from film Full HD, with the composer Lionel Marchetti, 8’15’’
Beyond the Sound - French May 2015

This video, in the form of a tracking shot, starts from the centre of the megalopolis of Tokyo and heads out to suburban areas, both from a time-based viewpoint and from a present, towards an indeterminate future. The acoustic work by Lionel Marchetti underscores these different metamorphoses. The artist and the composer have played on the same parameters, namely, starting from recognizable referents and extending
them towards more abstract forms. The architecture gradually disappears and gives way to signs. It is no longer a “constructed” city, but a proliferating city made up of advertising hoardings, movements and light.
